The most wonderful time of year on Court Street
Uptown Athens will be as pretty as a postcard this December with festive decorations, tree lights, holiday music and wreaths that are sure to get you in the spirit of the season! Court Street will be graced with the sounds of carolers, bands, choirs and local musicians. Activities and experiences for children around every turn. Also, make sure to find the gingerbread houses gracing the windows and displays of Uptown shops for the Second Annual Uptown Athens Gingerbread Competition! So much magic to enjoy this season.
